Room full of drying paint hazardous to electronics?

    Hi everyone,

    I was curious about a certain situation that happened to me and I was looking for some feedback.

    I have a room full of sensitive electronic equipment. It just so happens that while I was away on vacation someone painted the room. This person took no precautions to ventilate the room, nor cover any of the electronics while painting.

    The equipment seems to be working OK with no paint on it, however I was curious if paint fumes (or whatever is released in the air as paint dries) can bind or damage electronic components. I don't know what the paint solvent is exactly but I do believe the paint is latex-based.

    Any ideas? Is this even an issue for electronics/computers?

    Thank you

    What kind of "sensitive equipment" are you talking about? For a specific answer you need to provide specific details.
